Since the first time I saw Dr. Archer and started on my hormone treatment, things may get me down for a day, maybe two, but that’s it. I started on my new hormones on June 1, 09. I have almost as much energy as I did in my 30’s. I can’t wait for the 20’s!! Today, I walked for the first time and I joined Weight Watchers one more time, but for the last time. I’m going to outlive Suzanne Somers!!! I’m handling the rejection which is something I’ve never been able to handle and I’m starting to really like me. I’m starting to paint again and starting to make my house beautiful which is why I got into this business 21 years ago.
I applaud Dr. Oz’s answer on Oprah show regarding andropause or as we like to call it Man-o-pause! For men Testosterone reaches a peak at around age 25-30 and then goes down at a rate of 1-2% per year which is why as Dr. Oz points out that the onset of symptoms is very slow and not very obvious to men. The changes with menopause tends to happen over a shorter period of time so women are more aware of the changes. Men may notice a lack of energy, declining memory, increased moodiness, a decrease in libido and/or erections and a loss in muscle tone, increase in fat and a loss of stamina. Levels of testosterone are easily checked in a blood test and can be corrected with testosterone therapy. In addtion to improving all of the above symptoms, replacing testosterone also decreases the risk of heart disease and alzheimer’s disease and can improve cholesterol and blood sugar levels among many other benefits. Many of the changes that men tend to chalk up to aging can be improved with testosterone therapy.
In women who are entering menopause, estrogen levels are either too high or too low. Estrogen influences the production of serotonin – a neurotransmitter that regulates mood. Irritable Men Syndrome or Irritable Male Syndrome (IMS) is the term used to describe the mood swings in men. Although Irritable Male Syndrome is most often caused by high stress and/or low testosterone; high estrogen levels can also cause irritability in men.
Weight gain in men and women can be a result of a hormonal imbalance. Hormones decline as we age and as they do, contribute to men and women’s propensity to gain weight.
